Brooke Marie Hyland (born January 30, 1998) is the eldest child of Randy and Kelly Hyland and is the older sister of Josh Hyland and Paige Hyland

During her time on Dance Moms, Brooke was the oldest permanent dancer on the team. It was stated that, before the show, she was one of Abby's favorites.[3] However as she got older, she started to lose interest in dance and Abby started to grow cold towards her.

Brooke and her family finally departed from the show after a physical altercation between Kelly and Abby in Big Trouble in the Big Apple. During the pyramid in the following episode, Abby revealed that the Hyland sisters had been dismissed from the team.

In 2016, Brooke graduated from Franklin Regional High School.[4] She later went on to attend Ohio University as a business major[5] and graduated in 2019 with degrees in Marketing and Management Information Systems.[6]
